A new report has linked three Major League Baseball players to performance enhancing drugs.
Ryan Howard, Ryan Zimmerman, and Taylor Teagarden are three players who allegedly received PEDs from Charlie Sly, a pharmacist based in Austin, Texas. He worked at the Guyer Institute, an Indiana-based anti-aging clinic in 2011.
In a documentary "The Dark Side" on Al Jazeera America that comes out on Sunday, Sly claims that he helped many professional athletes in many sports overcome injuries through drugs like Human Growth Hormone. The Huffington Post obtained the documentary on Saturday.
While it remains to be seen whether anything will come out of this report, it is still something to monitor over the course of the next few months. Obviously, it could cause major implications for those three players--and perhaps others--if found to be true.
NFL star quarterback Peyton Manning is among those named in the report.
Sly has since responded to these claims publicly, negating any truth to them. This story is definitely one worth keeping tabs on, however, there is definitely a real chance it comes out false.
Story updated to reflect Sly's response.
